Driver sd needs updating please use bustype method

I'm running out of ideas, can anyone please suggest something - obviously not buying a new HD, it's not worth it.

Perhaps I should do a different install or boot linux with different parameters.

Another thing that puzzles me is how am I getting those errors, considering I don't really have 4 ata drives, yet only two - hard disk and dvd rom.

Driver sd needs updating please use bustype method

A little update in hope someone out there might help out: I've been trying out other distros, notably slackware (x86 version), knoppix (didn't get it to boot properly, only one attempt though), gentoo (didn't get it to boot the installation cd, and since i couldn't get knoppix up i gave up on it temporarily).

And of those I could get slackware to boot up without causing too much frustration to myself (LILO sucks).
